This was our first stop. The road was crazy bumpy and muddy. We encountered some huge mudslides that our tricycle somehow drove through and one that closed the road. We had to walk because the mudslide closed the entire road. The Hapao terraces was really nice. Seemed newer than Batad and the concrete walkways were more even so the walk... More

Another stunning highlight of our trip to the rice terraces. Note that the Hapao Terraces are separate from Banaue, our rickshaw driver recommended we visit these terraces first (we came here in the morning). Spare about 4 hours for the Hapao Terraces. You can walk through the rice fields, and take a dip at the hot springs. Be sure to... More

Hard to judge which rice terraces were the most beautiful between Banaue, Hapao and Batad but Hapao definitely took our breath away. We also ventured by ourselves to find the natural hot springs and we would probably recommend having a guide with you. We got lost a couple of times and only when we saw other tourists could get back... More

Takes about an hour to walk through the Hapao rice terraces to the hot water pool. In June, the terraces were bright green and yellow, and a treat to the eyes! So many photograph-worthy points throughout the trek. You pass by a few houses, some local farmers/children and barely any tourists. The hot water pool and cold stream at the... More

Loved it on the first day when we arrived in Banaue to have a easy walk around the lush green rice terraces. The trip from banaue takes some time but its worth it to see this man made marvel.

Very far from Banaue (15m could be more than one hour), but very nice, expecially the net terraces. Personally I prefer the Batad and Banaue rice terraces, but also worth a visit.

Better then Banaue Rice Terraces and to experience the beauty of it all you need to hike down to the village at the bottom

travel time is over an hour. the roads are being widened so there were road blocks. but scenic and made it really worth the trip. You marvel at the engineering genius of the natives who built the rice terraces and appreciate their families in continuing this legacy through the younger generations.
